Deborah Wagner used Francisco Gualtieri’s The Green Door, a photo on Flickr pinned to the Get It Scrapped Color Blocking Board as inspiration for this scrapbook page.
Deborah says, “I loved the bright colors and the repetitions of rectangles in Gualtieri’s photo.”
She used this inspiration on her 2-page layout, by mounting a series of photos on 4 rounded-corner rectangles. Each rectangle is cut from a different color of bright tone on-tone patterned paper.

Deborah lives in a small town in Minnesota with 3 lively teens and her husband of 25 years. She is very passionate (her kids would even say obsessed) with digital scrapbooking and spends most of her free time scrapping or learning about design, color, and artsy Photoshop techniques.
Deborah loves documenting her family’s lives, but also uses scrapbooking as an emotional outlet. As a result her pages often take on a life of their own!
